LINK - Charleston Tea Plantation, which was purchased by the Bigelow Family of tea fame in 2003, is open for tours again. I'd say this is a must on my next tour of Charleston. It's appropriate that the city which has America's only tea plantation is the setting for Laura Childs' tea shop mystery series. I read her latest installment in a single day last month. It is Blood Orange Brewing. If you have not read any of her tea mysteries, I recommend that you begin with the first in the series, Death by Darjeeling.
